Could You See Sophia Loren on 'Modern Family'?

Sofia Vergara of Modern Family'Modern Family' is batting a thousand in its first season for perfect, seamless celebrity cameos. We've had Shelley Long, Benjamin Bratt, Elizabeth Banks, and perhaps the best and most bizarre of them all, Edward Norton as Spandau Ballet's bass player. All of them have fit perfectly, and none has really felt like sweeps stunt.

Over at TV Guide, William Keck is trying to find out who else might be popping in on the sitcom. Last week, he talked to Eric Stonestreet about who should play his character's mother next season (his choice is Delta Burke from 'Designing Women'). This week, he asked Sofia Vergara who should play her character's mom, and she chose legendary Italian actress Sophia Loren.

The 75-year-old Loren does bear some physical resemblance to Vergara, and she does have comic chops (Vergara cites Loren's work in Marcello Mastroianni films). She also has recent experience playing a mother - her own mother, at that, in an Italian television biopic based her sister's book, according to the Times of India.

Loren is not really known for her television work, but if anyone could land find a way to lure her with the perfect part, it would be the 'Modern Family' crew.

Sophia has done a few TV movies before but never a series. This would be the perfect television show for her if she ever does one, and I hope she does!
